About the Property

Tranquil 3 bed, 2 bath, 4* ETC home, with balcony views of The 02 Arena'.

The front of the property has suburb River views over the River Thames, there are no passing cars, no fumes, no boy racers, etc., just tranquil tidal waters teaming with fish and wildlife. The occasional passing ship or cruise liner slowly sails by, as does the River Shuttle bus on route every 15 minutes East to Greenwich, or Westminster up river. Catch this at Canary Wharf Pier.
The other side of the property has green lawns in a residential Private Square filled with mature rose bushes, many trees and seating, affording the most charming and private of holiday locations. Squirrels and the neighbourhood cat will keep you company.
Here each house has it's own generous private parking space, off street, adjacent, included within your booking. The house has 3 double bedrooms, 2 of the beds are king sized and one bedroom has 2 single beds, these 3 bedrooms are supported by 2 bathrooms. The top floor bedroom has a bathroom en-suite with a large bath with overhead shower, a bidet, a marbled vanity unit with wash basin and a toilet. At the other side of the room is the large bed and a private balcony overlooking the River Thames. There's seating and a table on the balcony so you can relax and while away the time watching the changing watery scenery, perhaps sip something cool. You will see the cormorants, gulls and passing ships.

The sailors on the Navel vessels often line up along the length of the ship in their formal dress to welcome and salute the docks as they sail past. Quite a sight really.

The 2nd floor has a bedroom at each side of the house with a bathroom in-between. This has a large shower enclosure with power shower. These two bedrooms on this level, one has a river view and one has a view of the private square gardens. All very quiet even though you are nearby the hustle and bustle of town. (Canary Wharf has a vibrant night life but no noise is heard along the river.)

The international exhibition centre “EXCEL EXHIBITION CENTRE” is 12 minutes away by either train or car. We have many returning guests who come each year to visit this centre. They get to know the area, the smugglers inn nearby 'The Gun' which is 16th Century and nowadays a thriving restaurant. They get to know the local pubs such as 'The George' at Crossharbour station. There are so many fine restaurants, we like 'The Gun' as it's very good and only 100 meters walk away from our garden gate. Along and around the waterways at Canary Wharf are so many good places to dine with a choice of international cuisine with notable Chefs. There are places for children too and of course you can dial up for free delivery of Indian, Mexican, Chinese, Italian, Thai., and a host of burger and pizza places.

The house is nearby the trendy, busy financial world of Canary Wharf.,with it's restaurants, many shops and vibrant nightlife. The house is fully insured for holiday lettings, provides excellent light and airy accommodation for up to 6 people, maximum. The rental rate given is for 4 people only and varies by £100 for each additional person to a maximum of 6 people. There's FREE WIRELESS INTERNET, PRIVATE PARKING and a full satellite package supplied by the 40' HD TV.in the open plan lounge. So whether your interests are Australian Cricket, Wimbledon Tennis, a Premier football match, International channels in various languages, or you wish to watch the news from where you come from, you can record it and watch it when it suits you. A 2nd TV is in the 3rd bedroom on the 3rd floor (not satellite).

As would be expected given the close proximity to the City, there are plenty of excellent local restaurants to suit most palates. Nearby, within easy walking distance, you will find Billingsgate Fish Market which ensures the very best of seafood, all over London. Well worth a visit as there is a freezer unit in the house for your purchases. Opens to the public at 7.30am, till .30am.

An excellent Indian Restaurant is within easy 5 minutes walking distance and we have negotiated a 10% DISCOUNT for our guests. Also, a second Indian restaurants nearby South Quay train station, allows our guests a 10% discount. There is a 3rd Restaurant. full details of how to book these are given in the house.

This house offers a special retreat in a quiet private square, with the outside of the square being the property frontage, overlooking the River Thames. An ever changing view from each of the 3 levels. On the first floor you will find the large long open plan living area with a picture window taking up most of the wall, overlooking the River Thames.

In the centre of the living space is the dining area with strong solid wood seating and an oval glass dining table, seating up to 6 people. Then you have the kitchen area which has a breakfast bar with two high stools. The kitchen has a full sized dishwasher (we supply dishwasher tablets) a full sized fridge, a separate freezer cabinet, a washing machine which dries also, a double oven cooker with 4 hob plates plus a griddle side on the top. There's a large toasting area to the oven unit and we have a small toaster also, along with an electric coffee percolator, a microwave oven and all really that you would expect for a comfortable holiday home from home.

The famous Billingsgate Fish Market is nearby for the best catch of the day! Need to get there for 7.30am. They close at 8.30am. The fish from here supplies the whole of London’s restaurants, from 4.30am each day. You can buy small quantities though to suit your needs after 7.30am. They also serve brilliant breakfast of fresh smoked haddock with eggs.

For Groceries you will find all that you will need at our local supermarket which is 3 minutes walk from the house in Stewart Street.This opens at 7.30am each day and closes at 10pm., except on Sundays when it closes at 4.00pm. Then there are larger supermarkets such as the TESCO's across the road from South Quay Rail Station, this store is open till 11pm. A large ASDA supermarket is about 10 minutes walk.

There is a large print map prepared for you with these facilities marked out.

There are lots of local tourist attractions and a superb selection of speciality shops in nearby Canary Wharf. Here also you will find picnic areas in landscaped gardens with waterfalls and fountains, a very large selection of eateries and clothing shops. It's a very rich area, teaming with wealthy financial traders who live and work in the area.

Indeed, with a thriving business community we have many good eateries to suit all purses, too many to mention here, some are listed on the owners web site www.vacationsinlondon.com

Transport.
Located in Zone 2 of Central London's Underground Network, it's the cheapest rail ticket for Central London's Underground, there's lots to do and see everywhere.
Getting around Town: With so much to see, we have excellent transport arrangements.
Traveling around is a breeze, literally. The River Bus operates during commuter hours every 15 minutes and there's also the Central London Underground, particularly the Jubilee Line. So one can be wisked off to pastures new, in minutes. We have 3 local rail stations in all.

Nearby there’s Canary Wharf, Greenwich, The Tower of London and Tower Bridge. It's the cheapest tube fare for town and very easy to reach everywhere in town from one of 3 local train stations, all part of the Central London Underground Network. It all depends on which direction of town you wish to travel to.

Also, there are Red London Buses, (Pick up point is right outside the square) Black London taxies, or the River bus which picks up from Canary Wharf Pier every 15 minutes. This is my favourite method.Travel up river to Westminster Pier, stopping at Tower Bridge Pier, then the Embankment (for the London Eye) or down river to Greenwich.(Royal Parks and Museums) The 3 local tube stations are 'South Quay' and 'Crossharbour' or 'Canary Wharf' on either the DLR Line or the Jubilee Line. both part of the Central London Underground Network.

I must not forget our local “Boris Bikes”, so named after our flamboyant Major of London. It was his initiative to install these bike docks all over town, possibly every half mile you will find one. Just £1 buys you an hour’s bike travel. The first half hour is free, so if you are smart you could cycle for 25 minutes, park the bike, wait 6 minutes and then take another bike for the next phase of your journey. 30 minutes covers a lot of ground in busy London streets. Cars are required to purchase a ticket to cover the congestion charge of £8.50 per day. Consequently, there are less cars in town. There are clearly defined cycle lanes everywhere and its very popular.

We can accept bookings online, by credit card, . Also, by English cheque or bank transfer. For a reference, we have been a a member of the English Tourist Council for 17 years, holding a 4* Certificate each year after an extensive annual inspection of the facilities and comfort level. So you can be assured that all is as it should be.

To hold the dates you require, we take a £200 deposit and then the balance becomes due 2 months before your arrival. We supply our guests with a confirmation of booking document which confirms all the aspects of the booking and the accommodation. Nearer the time of arrival we supply our guests with general directions from each of London’s airports and main hub train stations.

We hope you will get in touch, a quotation for your stay is quick and we would love to hear from you.

We offer a 10% DISCOUNT for same month bookings where dates are free, plus a 5%
Discount off the rates for returning guests.

Year Purchased: 1997

About: Hello everyone, having worked in London from a young age, I grew accustomed to travelling in and around London and after a few years I chose to settle as a single business woman in this vibrant area of London. They were very exciting times with marbled skyscrapers popping up everywhere and new restaurants to try and new transport links. I drove into town each day and found that this was a convenient location with a wow factor of the river frontage. With off street private parking at the house and the area full of local attractions, this was indeed a find. Then I met my Partner, he lived in the Midlands of England, so I duly moved. However, not wishing to part with this lovely house the idea came to me to rent for short periods. Thus, I would have a foot in the area when I wished to visit. I have family in the area and so this arrangement has proved to be very beneficial to all, sharing the wonderful views and tranquil waters with my new and returning guests.Check out the Special rates apply for same month bookings, where dates are still free.

Why Isle of Dogs, London, UK:
This house struck me as soon as I cast eyes on it. I was not looking to move but immediately had to buy it. It has been a very happy place to live and now my guests can enjoy the ever changing river views and wildlife. My local housekeeper looks after it for me and we both work hard to ensure our guests are made as comfortable as possible. The English Tourist Council, inspect this property every year and grade again. A 4* certificate has been achieved every year for 15 years now.

I have been a member of their association for 10 years now. You will find our properties listed in their web pages on their site www.visitengland.com, through our 10 year association with them.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique benefits for this house are: Superb River views; local transport connections are excellent; local tourist attractions; good restaurants; quiet private location; quiet streets away from the main traffic areas; good bus service; local London Theatres; Royal London markets. Private off street Parking. More recently, we now have the '02 Orena' for live concerts; the New 'Olympic Stadiums' and the supporting new shopping centre Westfield, at Stratford; not forgetting the new Bike Hire Service from outside the private square. Just £1 per half hour to travel across town and park the bike up somehwere else in another docking station. There is the Emerates Fly Drive which is a cable car ride across from the 02 Arena, high in the sky, across the river to London City Airport. The Shuttle River boat collects folk along the river at the Pier points. From The Royal Docks through to Westminster. Passing by the house just before Canary Wharf Pier. Very good mode of travel. Please visit our dedicated web site where we have posted lots of links to the main areas and attractions. www.vacationsinlondon.com I have seen many sights on the river, a beached Whale, a mother and daughter Dolphin lost, they swam by and ended up at Westminster Pier; the Queens Jubilee last year, all the magnificent tall ships sailed by to moor at the end of each day in Canary Wharf locks. We have many returning guests each year and some of their reviews can be viewed here and on our own web site, noted above. I hope to hear from you soon. (Note: We offer 10% discount off the weekly rate for same month bookings! ) Happy Holidays. regards Christine James
